Longtime LTEN member David Purdy, president of Psychological Consultants, Inc. (PCI), has announced his retirement. After 41 years at PCI (23 as president), Purdy will close the firm at the end of 2018.
“When I joined PCI in 1977 as a graduate student, I had no idea that I would spend my entire working life at the same company,” Purdy said. “I’ve had a very fulfilling career at PCI and have worked with many talented people at our client companies across the country and around the world.”
Most of Purdy’s work at PCI has been with life sciences companies, prompting him to join LTEN (then NSPST and later SPBT) in 1991. Purdy called his LTEN membership “one of the highlights of my career.”
“I've made many friends with training and development professionals in the industry and will miss my regular involvement with LTEN,” Purdy said. “And now at this stage of life (turning 65 next year), I look forward to all sorts of exciting new possibilities, including traveling with my wife and spending time with our two-year old grandson, Julian!”
Purdy welcomes the chance to stay in touch with LTEN colleagues. After Jan. 1, 2019, he can be reached at (804) 241-2472 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
